McNaughton Collection: Featured Book

If you’re anything like me, movies which begin with the tag “Based on a True Story”, immediately get my attention. There is something captivating about a true story of triumph to leave you feeling warm and fuzzy all over. “Miracle on the Hudson” is that kind of story.

Husband and wife journalists, William Prochnau and Laura Parker interviewed 118 passengers from U.S. Airways Flight 1549 which was successfully ditched in the Hudson River on January 15, 2009. The Airbus was disabled after striking a flock of geese near Manhattan. “Miracle on the Hudson: The Survivors of Flight 1549” tells the riveting stories of ordinary people doing the extraordinary in the face of certain death. A must-read page-turner!
